The Field Connect app will apparently send information regarding weather, power outages, or any sort of hazard that may impact a field technician's job straight to a user's watch.

For public safety officials, the Incident Aware app provides a GPS-enabled bird's-eye view of the scene of an emergency situation, including the location of those involved.
